Rachel Whitear-Critical Analysis

Extracts from this document...


27/10/03 Homework Rachel Whitear-Critical Analysis The photograph of Rachel on the floor in her room is indeed very powerful. It is a very graphic photograph and is meant to be this way, the people who took it used it for their crime scene investigation. But people who saw the photo realised that it could be used too send a blunt message to make people think twice before stepping into the world of drugs. The room that she lived in for the last few days of her life was bare, no pictures, no posters, no fancy paint, no wallpaper, no personality, no feeling.

If anything good came of her death it was the fact that the photo can have such an impact on people that it would prevent them from taking drugs. The photo is mainly shown to the school audience, trying to make them see the horrors that can follow drug abuse.

Rachel's story shows how people can be mislead if they do not have all the facts about drugs. ...read more.


I think the song 'the drugs don't work' by the Verve could be played while the picture of Rachel dead on the floor could be shown. The poem that Rachel wrote before she died could be recited while the image of her on the floor could be shown at the same time.
